Book presentation "Financial Market Transparency": the biological underpinnings of finance.
What is the real value of banking in the digital 21st century, given central banks’ new normal and fintech disintermediation? “Financial Market Transparency” answers this canning question by unveiling the biological underpinnings of investment decision-making to guide the transformation of business models from “mechanisms of monetary policy transmission” (interest rate margins) towards “competence centres” (holistic advisory and planning services). As financial products and expert opinions become less relevant to generate revenues, client needs and their emotional relationship with money take center stage in the human-driven value-generation process. Transparency becomes a competitive advantage and creates a consequentialist ethic that can change agents’ behaviour, reconciling short-term economic needs with long-term development goals (SRI, ESG) to increase antifragility and bolster the global economy’s immune system in today’s volatile times.
